by charles krauthammer, at first a look at how conservatives are preparing for the obama administration from today's "washington journal peer co--- journal." h: let me share the comments from bobby jindal. guest: i like bobby jindal. i think stupidity allows you to stick to tried and true vegetables that is better than the cleverness of people in the obama administration who think they can design the entire health care system from scratch in washington, or target $850 billion of stimulus effectively. i would defend it to some degree, but i would agree there's probably been accessed in the last two years, and it is easy to say that, but the proof is in the pudding third in the case of bobby jindal, he has been an impressive governor of a state that was not in great shape when he took over, and that will be crucial to the republican party, not people like me saying do not be stupid , but republican officials proving that conservative policies work. host: reince priebus indicated that he is authorizing an autopsy, in trying to figure out what happened last november. what happened? what would yo
this administration? guest: the inauguration speech was picking up a very common and almost mantra in the obama administration of achieving equality, which is a noble and important goal. i think the most significant thing about the inauguration speech, which are particularly thought was wonderful, was his reference to gay-rights and to the gay movement. it established his commitment to equality. i want to note that he has not been particularly aggressive in supporting gay rights in his first administration. his administration in court argued the same arguments as the bush administration. he still refuses to make clear his position on key legal aspects of gay-rights. and so, the first term obama was not nearly as passionate as that speech would suggest. but what was missing once again was a discussion of civil liberties. i think it does reflect this great schism in the democratic and liberal community. i wrote a column two years ago about how barack obama has destroyed the civil liberties movement by dividing it. he does not have a good record on civil liberties. he adopted an expanded on many o
that obama will try to use administrative actions because the house will block actions by legislation, which is why i am extremely encouraged by the ruling you may remain i've heard by the first circuit today, throwing out the nlrb appointment. [applause] i have been quite shocked by the of lawlessness of the administration by legislating around congress in a way that i think is clearly unconstitutional. for example, passing the dream act. however you stand on the dream at, i should be done by congress and not by the administration. and it did that. because if a conservative had decided to restrict the irs that it would no longer collect capital gains tax, which is a way to enact the capital gains tax elimination without congress, we would all be astonished by that and clearly say that you cannot do it. but that is what the dream that was. similarly, with the attempt by the hhs to pass regulations, which undermines the will -- the climate in welfare, which was one of the great successes of the policy in the 1990's. i don't know if there will be challenged in the courts, but what happened tod
that. by 2008 we achieved victory. that was built upon the n the early years of the obama administration. by refusing a stay-behind force that the leadership in the military wanted at the time, we do risk the gains we had made. you have more strife in iraq. you have, some strange behavior and right now it is too soon to tell if the war has been won. it was won at a time but, as i said, we might be snatching the feet of the jaws of victory. because the president's concern is ending the war not winning the war. >> there are people who are licking their chops for the cuts in the defense department. there are people who don't bawling at sequestration. there are people who welcome it. i take it you are not one of those people. >> i don't welcome it. i have said many times, i would oppose the budget control act which will raise the debt ceiling. in part, because the way the question provisions were written. they were unbalanced. 50% of our cuts come from the defense. it just cut everything by the same amount as opposed to give our military leaders the pentagon to cut from unsucc
